Some sleazy metaphor on hibernation would be redundant in these lines. Mostly because we didn’t sleep, or binge-watch every possible series, but the Low-Fi team grew even bigger in the past two months. And you know what they say, the more the merrier playlist!
Naturally, we came up with a spring playlist and some stories behind these particular music choices. By the way, don’t expect any leitmotif whatsoever since we’re shifting through languages and decades: from The Beatles to some forgotten Pitchfork’s picks from the golden age of indie rock ‘07, and Calvin Harris.
You know how some playlists tend to be blatantly nostalgic or overly-happy-pom-poms-glittercore? Well, we decided to embrace both, and the universe contained in between mood poles.
And it sounds a little bit like this…
Jamie Cullum – Catch the Sun It was April, we were in a park and it was pouring, just pouring rain. But we needed to stay strong as the one and only Jamie Cullum was playing his Open Air Concert for us – literally! When we were already drenched in water, he got onto the stage, jamming the first chords of this song – and it suddenly felt very much like the sunniest spring day. Oh, what music can do to you!

Lykke Li – Little Bit Cutest song ever. Her voice is so innocent and playful. Spring all the way! Ilinca’s picks (SoMe Ninja)
I know I’m the one who included The Beatles in our playlists, but the truth is that I am not a Beatles fan at all. Gasp! Heresy! …Yes, I know. Maybe because they’re too upbeat even if it’s a sad song or because we always had to sing one of their songs during music class in school. However, I always liked “Here Comes The Sun” because it’s uplifting without being annoyingly over positive.
Also, I really love Florence and the Machine, and I love this version of the song cause it’s undeniably danceable and colorful. Monika’s picks (Content Marketing)
Blur – Parklife What’s the first thing Danish people do when spring finally arrives? Run to the parks, obviously. Anders’ picks (Concert Producer)
Nina Simone – Feeling Good Spring’s arrival it’s the ultimate sign that I’m almost done with my thesis. And this kept me going during those long, sleepless nights!
Ohhioh – Chains to change Chasing love can be quite a struggle. But then it finally happens. Zuzanna’s picks (Community Manager)
